If you've been convicted of impaired driving more than once, you know that the only thing worse than your first DUI arrest is your second one. Courts and judges want to crack down on repeat DUI offenders. This can mean big penalties and multiple charges, especially when the DUIs are close together. For example, a New Jersey man was recently arrested for his third DUI less than a month after his second . As a result of this, he was ticketed for 11 violations including: driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, refusal to take a breath test , open container violation, consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle, no registration, failure to maintain headlights, failure to signal and improper use of the center lane. All of these charges insure he will be facing some serious jail time, hefty fines, and loss of license. A good DUI lawyer can probably work with the prosecutors to get him a plea bargain or reduced charges. This is yet another example of the huge difference having qualified legal representation can have on your DUI case.
